What are Same Day Crowns?

Restore your smile permanently in one easy visit

Traditionally, crowns are made of metal, porcelain or other lab-created materials and the process takes several weeks.

While this solution is suitable for some people, Dr. Feinberg is passionate about bringing his patients the very best in modern dental technology. That’s why he offers CEREC one-visit dental crowns, right here in his La Mesa dental office. With the CEREC system, he is able to offer painless dental crowns in a fraction of the time - a perfect solution for busy patients who simply don’t have the time required for traditional crowns.

Schedule your free consultation today and find out why Dr. Feinberg’s patients consider him the best dentist to see for same-day dental crowns in La Mesa.

What is CEREC?

CEREC (Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics) uses the latest computer-assisted technology to design and manufacture crowns on the spot, a process that takes one to two hours from start to finish. Same day crowns are milled in your dentist’s office right away. You will not have to wear a temporary or wait weeks for your permanent crown to be made.

Receive Your Permanent Crown in Four Easy Steps

CEREC crowns have several distinct advantages. The system eliminates the need for traditional dental impressions, instead taking a pain-free digital scan of your mouth from which your permanent crown will be milled and ready to wear the same day.

  1. Prepare the tooth
  2. Take a digital mouth scan
  3. CAD/CAM technology mills a 3-D ceramic crown in <2 hours
  4. Place crown over the existing tooth or implant
  5. Dr. Feinberg makes adjustments for a perfect fit

Benefits of Same Day Crowns

Traditionally, getting a crown put in requires taking impressions of your existing tooth. Not only is this process uncomfortable, it also requires you to wear a temporary crown while you wait for your permanent crown to be constructed in an off-site lab. This can take up to three weeks!

CEREC crowns have changed this process. As the name implies, CEREC same day crowns enable patients to have a complete and permanent crown installed in just one visit, with no additional steps required.

Same day crowns feature chip-resistant materials that hold up well over time and will fit in nicely with your existing smile. In the hands of an experienced La Mesa same day crowns specialist such as Dr. Feinberg, your CEREC crowns will look and function just like natural, healthy teeth.

While same day crowns are more convenient for both patients and dentists, they do not compromise on durability and aesthetics as you might expect. CEREC crowns have excellent strength and can last up to 15 years with proper maintenance.

introduction to the top La Mesa dentist

“I went to Dr. Feinberg for dental implants because I was embarrassed about my two missing teeth. I was always trying to hold back laughter and refrain from smiling. I now have the best dental implants and I can laugh and smile again. You can’t even tell I have them!”

Am I a candidate for Same Day Crowns?

While CEREC same-day crowns have many applications in dentistry, they are not suitable for everyone. A conventional crown may be a better option if you have a tooth fracture that extends below your gum line. You may be a candidate for same day crowns if you have:

  • Discoloration
  • A large cavity
  • A poorly shaped tooth
  • Had a recent root canal
  • A dental implant or bridge
  • A weak, broken, or missing tooth

The Process: What to Expect During Your CEREC Same Day Crowns Procedure

We start by using state-of-the-art technology to obtain high-quality images of the tooth. This process is much more comfortable than taking impressions.

From these images, we are able to create a crown that matches your tooth perfectly and we do it right here in our office. It is then expertly placed over your existing tooth. All of this takes place in a matter of hours. You can show up for your appointment midday and fall asleep that night with a beautifully restored smile.

CEREC Same Day Crowns are made to match the color of your existing teeth. With over 17 shades available, Dr. Feinberg will have no trouble matching your CEREC crown to your natural teeth. You might also be pleased to know that CEREC crowns do not require any filing down of the existing tooth, as is the case with traditional crowns.

With all these incredible benefits, you might be wondering what the trade-off is? Believe it or not, there is no sacrifice in quality. CEREC crowns give you a stronger, more appealing finished tooth than traditional crowns, all in one single visit.
